The growing fire already had forced Cal Fire to issue new mandatory evacuation orders for residents living along the western shore of Clear Lake.

The fire has burned an area four times the size of San Francisco. The area remains closed to residents as crews work to restore some of the infrastructure in the area. "Our fires are probably more intense in terms of heat but those fires are flashier and fast moving so you have to be extra careful and really have your wits about you as a firefighter when fighting those fires". "If it does continue, then everybody in the state will be working hard and we're bringing in resources from outside the state", Matlow said.

Of the 20 people reported missing as of Monday, all have now been accounted for. Thousands more remain evacuated because of the blaze ignited July 23 by a spark from a steel wheel rim on a trailer towed with a flat tire.

As of last week, the state has spent a quarter of its annual emergency budget on battling the fires.

Tens of thousands of people remain under evacuation orders because of the fire, which has killed six people, including two firefighters, and leveled almost 500 buildings, according to officials.

A federal law passed in 1988 - crafted with NRA support - bars the manufacture, sale or possession of an undetectable firearm. The order has put on hold a plan for people to be able to legally download blueprints to make 3-D printed guns.

The blaze, stoked by drought-parched vegetation and triple-digit temperatures, has killed six people and reduced 1,555 structures to smoldering ruins, including 10,600 homes.

More than 13,000 firefighters are being aided by crews from as far away as Florida, but Brown repeated predictions from fire officials that California can expect a future of devastating fires, in part because of the changing climate.

The two Mendocino Complex fires cover 95,000 acres in Mendocino and Lake counties. The two fires have burned a total of 110,168 acres - 74,890 on the Ranch Fire and 35,278 on the River Fire, according to the numbers released by CAL FIRE Monday morning.
